The second in Erik Veldkamp’s Jazz History Transcription Series is here! The History of Rhythm Changes is a survey of the rhythmic development of jazz improvisation on the trumpet through a collection of 30 note-for-note transcriptions that span 80 years from Louis Armstrong’s I Got Rhythm to Wynton Marsalis’ Perdido. This collection progresses from early jazz beginning with Armstrong, then moving through Buck Clayton, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, Fats Navarro, Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan, Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, Blue Mitchell, Freddie Hubbard, Clark Terry, Tom Harrell, Wynton Marsalis, and many more. (See the full song list below).
To to be a well-rounded jazz player, we strongly believe you have to dive into the recorded history of the style, emulate the greatest players of all time, and begin to find your own voice through improvisation and experimentation. This nearly 120-page collection gives you just the opportunity to dig deep and explore one of the most important art forms in the history of American Music.
To the left I have dropped in some samples, below there is some audio for reference, and full demo recordings are included to accompany your purchase.
